Horses in Ballet Shoes

22nd June 2017 – 1st October 2017 
ARCHDIOCESAN MUSEUM IN KROMĚŘÍŽ

In Europe in the 17th century you could hear the rattle of weapons and the clanging of horseshoes of horses belonging to two monarchs. Not only did Luis XIV and Leopold I clash in the mud of battlefields, they also competed in the sand of arenas and on theatre stages. In the name of the state and the sovereigns propaganda, renowned composers wrote festive arias, architects created spectacular scenes, singers sang, horses and dancers danced, and artists documented.
